For many years No 6 Angel Hill, in the heart of Bury St Edmunds, was known as the home of the Tourist Information Centre.

Now it is a home again, and a rather grand one, overlooking the public square.

The hill is surrounded by a range of lovely buildings, representing the styles and character of building over the changing times and eras in the history of the town.
